BARRANCO 3D PROJECT

Once a town located south of Lima and accessed by train or tram, Barranco is now a bohemian district, full of old houses where you can find restaurants, pubs and art galleries.

All 3D models have been made to be seen using Google Earth. Download this freeware software here ( http://www.earth.google.com/ ) and take a trip through the streets of Barranco and view its most distinctive buildings.

This is an independent project. No person or organization has supported or sponsored its creation, and it is intended to focus attention of institutions and authorities to preserve the monumental architecture of the district, that currently are very neglected and damaged.


This project won the 2010 Google "Model Your Town" competition.

16.- La Ermita Church & the Bridge of Sighs (Puente de los Suspiros).

The voting period is over, therefore I would like to comment on this model, that didn’t got in time to be included in the Model Your Town Competition.

The Church “La Ermita” was built in 1805 by Father Villalta, pastor of Surco in the nineteenth century in the place where a lighted cross miraculously appeared to guide the return to land of fishermen lost at sea. On January 14, 1881 was burned during the war with Chile. Rebuilt, its roof was badly damaged by an earthquake in 1974 and it’s top cross has almost fallen. Since then, the church has remained closed for almost 40 years. While its facade is in good condition, the roof needs urgent reconstruction.
The Bridge of Sighs (Puente de los Suspiros) was built in 1876 during the government of Mayor Enrique García Monterroso, and was also damaged in the war with Chile. Reconstructed, was a source of inspiration for the famous composer and singer Chabuca Granda (1920-1983), reason why there’s a monument in his honor. The bridge has 8 m. tall, 31 m. long and 3 m. wide.
